One Of The Best.........
....films of its type you will see. Similar to the better known "How Green Was My Valley" but somehow, more realistic, grittier and true to life. filmed on location in and around Workington in Cubria, there are many scenes that Workingtonians of a certain age wlll no doubt recognise, Workington Main Station, Central Station, Siddick pit, Northside, and Derwent Crossings to name but a few.This is one of the most underrated films ever made, a must see.
whata great movie of the old pits made in my very own village of great clifton, workington, cumbria. shame william street which is the street mainly used in this where everyone lived hasnt got houses on both sides anymore BUT i will say the school is still stood however the school was closed from being a school when i was about 3-4 years which was about 1993-4. it has been turned into a beautiful house which it wont get torn down for many of years to come.

Best film yet here
This should have been a real blockbuster. No good guy getting the girl and nobody lives happily ever after. Just the real grit of peoples real tough lives with the raw emotions and grime they're forced to eat daily.
Don't you dare pass on this one!

Carol Reed Director of The Third Man.
A totally different style of movie but just as watchable as the Third Man. Much more than unrequited love...Thank you to uploader. It will stay with me because of its gritty charisma.

A great British movie
This is an excellent film by the director Carol Reed from a novel by A.J.Cronin [The Citadel]. It was made in 1940 and features Michael Redgrave and Margaret Lockwood.
The film is about life in a mining community and the destruction of one man's life at the hands of a woman. It is a great film by a great director and for that reason alone is historically important.
The video quality and audio are both very good. Many thanks to the uploader, I only wish more British movies from the 1930's to 1950's were available to download on the IA.
